Barnsley Academy is a fully inclusive school. We interview all applicants for positions regardless of disability as long as they meet the minimum criteria for the post.
Our facilities have full wheelchair and disabled access, and disabled toilets inside the Academy fully implements the Disability discrimination Act and the Disability equality duty.
According to the Disability discrimination Act 1995, as amended by the Special Educational Needs and Disability Act 2001, a responsible body discriminates against a disabled person in education if (section 28B(1)):
(a) for a reason which relates to his disability, it treats him less favourably than it treats or would treat others to whom that reason does not or would not apply; and
(b) it cannot show that the treatment in question is justified.
